Philosophy Of Care

“When my patients enter our office, they become part of the surgery family. I want the same outcome for them as I would for my own mother, father, wife and children. This is a team approach where I hope to provide the necessary medical/surgical information to help the patient and their family come to the best decision for their particular condition. The plan may involve a surgery, optimization of medical conditions before a surgery or may not require a surgery at all. In the end, my ultimate goal is to make a positive impact on their quality of life with the best means possible.”
